Eschewing the usual BBQ choices of burgers and sausages, Dine served cooked to order steaks, marinated chicken and skewers of king prawn and monkfish, alongside a carefully chosen selection of complementary salads and sides.

We were thrilled that – even when surrounded by such impressive aircraft – the esteemed guests still found the time to comment on how impressive they found our food and service!

Speaking to today’s Yorkshire Post, our client said that he hopes to launch a charter service to London City Airport in the next 12 months at a a similar cost to first-class train travel to appeal to professionals.

“It’s accessibility is very easy. That’s what I think will bring people here. It’s unbelievable how much potential there is. It’s the best site in Yorkshire.”
